El Kanemi Warriors celebrate President's Federation Cup victory in Maiduguri


El Kanemi Warriors were welcomed by huge crowds in Maiduguri upon their arrival from Lagos where they won the President's Federation Cup.

Borno Army defeated Abia Warriors 2-0 in the tournament finals at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan, Lagos State, on Wednesday.

The Sports Commissioner for Borno state, Buba Sainna, led residents in celebrating the team's victory.

The celebratory train passed major landmarks such as Post Office Roundabout, Shehu Palace Roundabout, Lawan Bukar, Galadima Junction, Customs Flyover, Gwange, Tashan Bama, University of Maiduguri and Lagos Streets.

Sainna stressed the need for low-key celebrations given the recent unfortunate events in the state.

He said Governor Babagana Umara Zulum would formally welcome the team at a later date.

El Kanemi Warriors will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.
